Addiction Counselor

Naomi Korn, LicSW, BCD

Licensed Clinical Social Worker


I work with sexual addiction issues in context of complete history and what motivated client to call. The collateral emotional damage to self and family, and sometimes the legal risks are what bring clients to seek help. It is not a short term therapy. The focus is on the one who initiates the call for help, be it the family member or the person with the problem behavior. I encourage some couple and family involvement, the appropriateness of involvement being decided upon in collaborative manner between me and the client. I assess and refer chemical addiction clients for specific addiction treatment before other issues can be addressed.

I do an in depth assessment to see the complete picture of the addiction as well as other issues that surround it. It is important to stop or interrupt the compulsive behaviors involved in addiction and then work on the underlying issues that fuel the addiction. I use a variety of therapeutic approaches when working with someone with an addiction to find what works best for that individual.

While most treatment approaches to addiction include 12 step programs, rehabs, and now sober living houses, Grey Matters International, Inc. provides a wildly successful alternative to traditional models of addiction treatment----that keeps the brain in mind. That is, talking to the conscious brain while the primal brain is deciding things even before you are consciously aware? Well, that is the problem to solve in addiction. We have the solution utilizing a new cutting edge neuroscience-centered brain rebalancing system. Contact or call 877-606-6161.

Addiction Counselor

Alex Chapunoff, LMHC

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

1135 Pasadena Avenue South, #236, South Pasadena, Florida

My approach toward addiction is to discover, with the client, what it has been accomplishing for him or her. In other words, what the purpose of the addiction is, its specific cause. The factor or factors that have been keeping it in place. I also tend to use cognitive-semantic processing and skills training because, very often, a person's unexamined thoughts and beliefs about self, life, and addiction may be an obstacle to his or her recovery. Examining these from a new and fresh perspective can bring about renewed insight, opportunity, and motivation.

Licensed Clinical Psychologists & Registered Dietitian Nutritionists

33 6th Street South, Ste 200, Saint Petersburg, Florida

Approximately 9% of Americans suffer with some sort of substance abuse problem, many of whom are able to work and maintain a somewhat stable lifestyle. However, if you have struggled with your ability to "drink normally" or have found yourself abusing your medication or other substances, it may be time to seek professional support to discuss how your life can become more manageable. Additionally, if your loved one is abusing drugs or alcohol and you are in need of support to cope with their addiction I also provide therapy and counseling to those in need of caregiver support.

Addiction (alcohol, food, illegal/legal/prescription drug abuse, gambling, “cutting”, Internet/gaming, high risk trading, etc.) takes a tremendous toll on individuals, families, friends, employees & employers. How did this start…what keeps it going…why does relapse happen…how do I let go of the addicted person…am I enabling…I can’t afford to keep helping… how do I recover from the lost time…Questions abound. I provide outpatient therapy to assist clients in breaking the grip of addiction with individuals, couples, families, organizations & significant others by developing a game plan addressing roots, habit cues, cravings to replace with strengthened, productive life goals & patterns.
